Cleveland, Ohio and Dallas, Texas are the only two cities left that the Republican Party is considering to host the 2016 Republican National Convention. The Republican Party is letting people vote in their poll to help the Republican National Committee pick the city for the 2016 convention.
The 2016 Republican Presidential and Vice Presidential nominee will be nominated in either Cleveland, Ohio or Dallas, Texas. This was announced by the Republican Party on Wednesday.
There were previously four cities left, but the cities of Denver and Kansas City are no longer being considered.
The winnowing leaves GOP leaders to choose between staging the big event in a Democratic-leaning city in the key presidential battleground state of Ohio or going deep in the heart of Texas, where George W. Bush and some of the party’s deepest-pocketed donors live.
On Thursday the cities of Las Vegas and Cincinnati both dropped their bids to be picked as the city to hold the 2016 Republican National Convention.
The following cities are still in the running to hold the convention.
According to the RNC, Las Vegas dropped out because their was no guarantee of an arena and a lack of funds. Cincinnati also did the same.
The Republican Party are considering several cities in the west and three cities in the state of Ohio as a site for their Republican National Convention in 2016.
These cities include:
The finalists are scheduled to make their first presentations to the Republican National Committee officials in Washington next week.
Mitt Romney is officially the Republican Party nominee for President of the United States. To get the nomination you need 1144 delegates. Governor Romney got 1,575 delegates, Senator Santorum got 245. Congressman Paul got 177 delegates, Speaker Gingrich got 138, Congresswoman Bachman and Governor Hunstman both got 1 delegate. *** I had to put Congresswoman Bachman and Governor Hunstman in one column because the program I was using only gave me five columns.
